« Unveiled »… my night (03.48)

Sleep enveloped me like a chrysalis.

And …

The very next moment,

I transformed into a butterfly.

The blue-green of my eyes has spread over my wings.

And …

It has fulfilled your dreams.


As light as the air.

I let myself be carried away by the wind.

No longer immune to the weather.

Exhilarating …

And …

For a moment in time,

I was flying.

Flying so high that nothing could reach me.

Not one look, not one word … I was free.

And …

It fulfilled my dreams.


Shortly afterwards, the butterfly landed.

Up there, way up there on the crest of the mountain.

The beating of its wings has ceased.

The blue-green has reverted to the iris of its eyes.

And …

It has observed.

And …

The moment after,

I woke up.

Silence enveloped me like a chrysalis.

A cocoon of tranquillity … far from uncertainty.


So …

I took my paper and pencil.

Then …

I wrote you a few words.
